Responding to uploaded club footage of loanee keeper Illan Meslier, many Whites fans have applauded his message to a youngster who went viral for his goalkeeping skills in the back yard – with one supporter suggesting the club ‘get him on a permanent‘.
Meslier, who was thrust into the side following first choice shot-stopper Kiko Casilla’s eight-match ban, has since gone on to impress over his two Championship outings for Leeds – keeping clean sheets in both matches he has started this season. Now, with football suspended until April 30th at the earliest date, Meslier has taken the opportunity to send his best wishes to a young goalkeeper on social media, instructing the viral sensation to ‘keep practising‘ as he is doing great.
Supporters have since come out to laud the message, praising Meslier as a ‘top man‘ – find all of their best comments from social media concerning the gesture down below.
